Switch - II (Gordy 1979)


Blogger low said...

Switch's sophomore album picks up where the group's debut left off. Scintillating harmonies and torching leads by Philip Ingram and Bobby Debarge make "Calling on All Girls," written by Jermaine Jackson, a standout. Equally as captivating is the roller coastering "I Call Your Name," written by Bobby Debarge, a song that aptly depicts teenage infatuation. They handle uptempo material with aplomb, too. Check out the groove on "Best Beat in Town, and the urgency and realness of "You're the One for Me." A bright yellow album cover depicts Switch dressed in fly outfits and enjoying the California sun. The guys from Akron, OH and Grand Rapids, MI had it going on, and probably thought the phat grooves and adulation would never stop.
